Pants fit guide part 3

How pants should fit, number 1:

When you try on pants, the protocol for assessing rather fit can be rather quick, even if the list seems long. Remember to wear the relevant accessories with them, such as a shirt, belt, braces, socks, and shoes, so that you can determine not only if they fit well but also if they suit the desired ensemble and the other items you will wear with them. Make sure to sit, stand, lean over, put on your shoes, and any other motions that you go through regularly. If you are trying on dress pants, bring dress shoes and not tennis shoes or driving mocs because otherwise, it is much more difficult to find the right length.

How pants should fit, number 2:

The waistband should sit comfortably around your waist, but snug enough to keep your shirt tucked in. When the waistband gives you a muffin top or is restrictive, that means that it is too tight, but if you can pinch more than an inch of material around the waistband, and it slides down after a few steps that means that it is too big. If that is the case, have the alterations tailor make the waistband slimmer. Also, you need a belt to hold them up, or you can leave a bit of room and opt for suspenders. Some men like suspenders because the pants effectively rest on the shoulders, and even if you walk all day or if you lose some weight, the pants will still fit very well. You can even have a slightly loose waistband and gain a little weight, without problems.

How pants should fit, number 3:

Front and seat: the area around your butt should allow you to sit comfortably. If x-wrinkles appear around the fly and/or your pockets gap, that means it is too tight because when you sit, you feel constricted in the thigh. If excess fabric begins to wrinkle or hang in folds around your seat and upper tights it means it is too big.
